In a time of opportunity, REM Capital is changing the way multifamily investment is done. In a time of uncertainty, we’re an operator with decades of experience and a deep bench.  In a time of unprecedented growth and prosperity, there is always opportunity for the disciplined and persistent.  Is it possible to be cutting edge and conservative?  It’s keeping the best of the “old” while adding the best of the “new”.  At REM Capital we’re challenging ourselves to re-think the proverbial “box”.  How can we provide superior value at a competitive price - to our residents, to our investment partners, and to our communities.  We challenge ourselves to take 100% personal responsibility for everything we do. What if we all treated our investment like we owned it - how would that look?  We’d like to welcome you to REM Capital.
